democrat harry reid expressing his condolences. but also during that statement, there was an implication there that under sequestration, when budgets are cut, that we may see more of these that it may put the marines and others and soldiers at risk because of the budget cuts. now i can tell you, marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied. saying that this this exercise, for example, was planned well in advance, had nothing to do with the budget cuts. there were no corners cut. and if they couldn't afford to have all the safety precautions into place, they wouldn't do the exercise. and in fact, one marine corps told us just, one marine corps official told us a short time ago, he considers this nothing but pure political posturing on the backs of these dead marines. >> those are some very strong words from the marine corps about senator harry reid, jim miklaszewski thank you soef for being on the program. >>> tonight president obama boards air force one to go to the middle east. prospects for movement on the israeli/palestinian peace proc

. let me throw a few facts on the table. the government accountability office that works for harry reid and obama, they say 125 billion dollars in estimated improper payments in the federal government? i've got another one of their reports, 510 billion dollars of duplicative wasteful programs in the federal government. that's a lot of money. i've got another document here, a summary of the social security, medicare boards of trustees. i think they work for obama and they say here, medicare and social security cannot sustain protected long-term programs costs and that somebody needs to do something about it very fast. what has obama done about any of this? nothing about the 500 billion dollars. nothing about the 125 billion dollars. nothing about social security, medicare, or medicaid. and then they go around talking about how they care about people. they don't care about anybody. they represent big government, and that's all they represent. >> sean: and mark, the results aren't good. let's be honest here, we have 9 million people, fewer americans in the work force, and 50 million americ
senate majority leader harry reid drew attention to budget cuts and how they could impact military training like that taking place at hawthorne. >> it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women, our marines were training there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back. >> some marine officials chafed at reid's commence. his spokesman clarified his remarks saying the idea of senator reid thinks that the hawthorne tragedy has anything to do with the sequester is absurd, shepard. >> shepard: jennifer griffin at the pentagon now. the horrible plot at the university of central florida in orlando. tonight, it is very clear the plan was for another virginia tech. murder on a scale that would forever change one of the biggest universities in america. you see, the student behind the foiled murder rampage wrote a checklist. and the last line "give them hell." just one of the many new details that police revealed today. there is a video from a camera that one officer had mounted on his u

, several bills to come out of the judicialry committ committee, go to the floor, harry reid said every senator will have to take a vote on every one of those bills. that includes nine democrats from red states or purple states that are up for re-election this cycle. they're going to have to take very tough votes on that. it will be hard for them. if they don't have 60 votes and the democrats have 55 zmors and they lose nine of their own people? where are they going do get those from? the republican side? highly doubtful. to your point, the gop and nra naturally aligned. >> let's talk more about democrats like joe mansion, a great political story about how he could be president obama's best hope for piecing together a deal. how crucial will be it to have individuals like this who can bridge the divide, try to find some measures that can get bipartisan support from both sides of the aisle? >> listen, i think if you see a joe mansion sort of step up to the plate and go and say listen, we're going to do something on trafficking, we're going to do something on background checks. and we're g

on zero solutions is not the way to get there. >> very quickly, harry reid is endorsed by the nra, wayne lapierre campaigned on behalf of harry reid. it's an organization for second amendment advocates. and you can find them, actually, on the other side of the aisle with very explicit nra support. again, we need to get away -- >> and the majority of nra members also support sensible gun legislation. >> it certainly sparks enthusiastic conversation on both sides. maria and amy, thanks again, great to talk to you again both always. >>> i do want to share a light moment from cpac's first day, it was back and forth. the issue of hillary clinton came up and begala, friend of the clintons was asked if she was going to run in 2016. listen to the response. >> i have no idea if she will. i think she's actually going to first, like live a life, write her book, reacquaint herself with the real world having been traveling the world, but i think this is really -- no, not get a facelift, she's not a republican society lady, she's a real woman. >> oh, that apparently did not end the clinton attacks. ye
yesterday with the new york times. all eyes on the senate and harry reid. that's the story this morning from roll call. with the senate judiciary committee now completing its work on a for your gun meters, the majority leader must now determine his strategy for how the chamber will move forward to in response to last year's school shooting. every week yesterday told reporters that he conferred with the chairman of the senate judiciary committee and he said "the and i will sit down to find out what has been reported out of the committee and what we need to do to put together as a base bill to start legislating on the senate floor." details available on roll call. callsl take your phone and you can share your thoughts on our facebook page and you can send us a tweet. bill is joining us from rhode island, independent line. good morning. are you with us? george in florida, republican, good morning. i don't think any campaign should be budgeted. the country, a good majority have already chosen to vote for a welfare check. the democrats and socialists have bought these people's votes. romney had t
. yesterday, senator majority leader harry reid had a debate on the floor and it is limited on this c.r. if the full 06 hours are taken up we'll see a vote on thursday. senate democrats want to move to their budget. the first senate budget on the oor in four years offered by patti murray and that budget is open to unlimited amendments, basically. once they start on that there could be 100 or more amendments and now they are talking about weekend votes. ut harry reid has not left for easter or passover recess before completing that. basically, the 60 hows of post closure debate time could be mited if they can get an unanimous consent but the senator from kansas blocked it because he wants an amendment on the federal aviation administration budget to allow them to have more money to stop the furloughs of the air traffic controllers. this has hit his state really heard and they are not giving him that vote so far. it is a slippery slope idea. they give him his vote they would have a flood gate opened. at one point there is 90 amendments to the c.r. and they are trying to avoid the situat
an hour. harry reid gave him an opportunity to leave at the appointed hour. he stayed another half an hour after that. so he clearly wanted to get engaged. he was very complementary of the ability to start moving legislation on gun safety on dealing with immigration reform eight senators are working on and that we enacted the vial lens against women act. he did point out that we have made some progress and progress is being made on our agenda and probably prior to issues but i think most of the discussion was around the budget problems and the fact that we are in sequestration i think we would rather see a more balanced way of dealing with the budget problems >> bill: we saw the paul ryan bucket which is a copy of what he has done in the past i am sure it will be dead on arrival. today, senate patty mer reis release the senate version of the budget. what can you tell us about it, senator? how does it differ from the ryan budget? >> the ryan budget is a lot of smoke and mirrors. he claims they are going to get certain reductions in spending but doesn't g
year. senator harry reid, the democratic majority leader, has come to the floor expressing some frustration. he wanted to move on this continuing resolution this week, as early as yesterday, giving members an opportunity to offer amendments. several members stepped forward and were prepared to do so, but they were stopped. there was a hold. and now, as i understand from the senator from oklahoma, and i believe my friend from arizona may echo his remarks, they're prepared to not stand in the way of any amendments, if members wish to offer, they can, and i hope they will. let me say a few words -- mr. mccain: since my friend is on that subject, could i -- mr. durbin: i ask permission to engage in dialogue with my friend, the senator from arizona. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: you'd say to my friend from illinois, there is no further objection. the senator from oklahoma and i have reviewed the bill and we discussed yesterday about its length and our obligations to -- i promise my friend from illinois, i won't rehash that discussion we had. but we have no obj

-span. the session is expected to continue late into the night. senate majority leader harry reid came to the floor to discuss that house republican plan. here's a look. >> mr. president, yesterday americans got their first look at this year's republican budget. turns out looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i was not the only one that said, gee whiz, not again? here's the headline from "bloomberg news". quote, ryan budget replays republican hits, quote clothe. one "washington post" reporter compared the release of the not so new and certainly not improved ryan republican budget to the movie groundhog day where bill murray relives his least favorite holiday over and over and over. remember this is the third ryan republican budget. this is what "washington post" also wrote, quote. the unrepentant reprisal of the same fiscal vision that was decisively repute aided last fall is bound to attract notice, close quote. indeed this is the same budget plan we saw from congressman ryan last year and the year before that. even the name is the same. if anything, this new ve

. the senators running in 2014, mary landrieu, mark begich of alaska, they might get a pass from harry reid. >> that is right. they control a couple of things, but we know that republicans are struggling with the same issue. the president is trying to give someone public and senators to work in a bipartisan way. but there's a lot of consternation in the house about house republicans. going after conservatives who look at tax increases as part of a deal. there is pressure from the left and right not to accept the deal. >> there was an editorial cartoon about someone reading the romney and ryan budget blueprint. and if it was the 2013 ryan budget. but essentially not a big difference between last year and this year. >> the biggest isn't spending. the romney and ryan ticket win after increased defense spending from we are now. it is about $100 billion more than what paul ryan proposed a few days ago. so that is a big difference. it made it easier for him to balance the budget by having lower levels of defense spending. would've been almost impossible to balance the budget over 10 years. >> wha
leader harry reid hopes to complete work on the government funding and then move on to the next fiscal year and get a resolution for 2014 approved by the end of the week before their upcoming spring recess. live coverage of the house over on our companion network, c-span, and the senate right here on c-span2. we'll be live with senator levin at 12:30, but until then here's a conversation with grover norquist. he's the president of americans for tax reform, and he met with us on this morning's "washington journal." >> host: and welcome back to the "washington journal." grover norquist, president and founder of the group americans for tax reform, joins us now. first want to get your thoughts on the news of the day, this new growth and opportunities project report out from the republican national committee. the chairman of the republican national committee is having a press conference that's started just a few minutes ago at the national press club talking about changes that the party needs to make in terms of outreach, changes to how to nominate a presidential nominee. your take on what
. and the senate's also in at 2 p.m. eastern, majority leader harry reid hoping to complete work on that continuing resolution and then move on to the 2014 budge and get it approved by the end of the week before the easter recess. live coverage of the house, as usual, on c-span and the senate on c-span2. earlier today here in washington republican national committee chair reince priebus announced the findings of a new report aimed at overhauling the republican party after losing the 2012 presidential election. the report, titled "the growth and opportunity project," includes 219 recommendations such as holding its national convention earlier than august in 2016 and modernizing the party's digital infrastructure. here's some of what he had totil say. >> in 2008 and 2012, the debates multiplied and were out of the control of the rnc. the cycle, this cycle, excuse me, there were 20 total debates. the first eight months before the iowa caucuses.. the report contrasts this with 1980 where there were six debates and 1988, there were 1 seven. i agree with the co-chairs whenw they say debates are vital to
overwhelmingly with republican support and opposition on our it was suggested to harry reid that that might be one way to get off the lack of action on making sure america pays its bills. the only reason i interrupt the gentlelady, i think it's important to understand your cut, cap, and balance passed before that suggestion was made included sequester as the fall back if we didn't reach the numbers. i think if it's the president's -- it's the president's via cut, cap, an balance which your side of the aisle passed and sent to the senate as presumably good policy. i thank the gentlelady for yielding, she was kind to do that. mrs. miller: i thank the gentleman for pointing out the sequencing of the sequester, the president's sequester, and i still say with the president's sequester, what's going to happen with this vote is a vivid nonstration of who is actually committed to doing more with less. my colleague, the gentleman, the minority whip, had also given a sort of historical lesson of various things under, in his observation of the way things had gone earlier on and i would point something
seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work hard and make tough choices, our kids will inherit a stronger country. mr. speaker, the choice is clear. if hoosier families balanced their budgets, washington doesn't have an excuse. it's time the president and the senate offer real solutions for hardworking hoosier families. i commend chairman ryan and the house budget committee for their hard work and i urge my colleagues to support the resolution. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. chairman. i n
leader harry reid has told her that the ban will not be a part of the initial gun control measure the senate will debate next month. california senator dianne feinstein says instead of being included in the measure, the ban will be offered z an amendment. the ban seems to stand little chance of surviving because of expected -- defections expected from republicans, likely also defections from some moderate democrats. and now to live coverage of the u.s. senate here on c-span2. the presiding officer: the senator from oklahoma. mr. inhofe: i ask unanimous consent i be acknowledged for up to seven minutes as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. inhofe: thank you, madam president. we -- we've been listening to our -- our good friend from kansas concerning this contract air traffic control towers. i think of all of the -- there's no better example to use than saying -- picking up a bureaucracy and taking somebody that everybody wants, that's very inexpensive and using that to try to force people to do something that shouldn't -- that -- that should never
